Troy: the World of the Hero

For Teachers 

The British Museum’s exhibition on the ancient city of Troy reveals thrilling new dimensions on several components of the OCR qualification in both Classical Civilisation and Ancient History, especially World of the Hero, The Homeric World, War and Warfare, and Foundations of Rome. Teachers are invited to an event run by the Museum in partnership with the ACE Advocating Classics Education initiative at King’s College London. This combines a lecture by Professor Edith Hall on Homeric and Vergillian ideas of the hero with a free visit to the exhibition.

Roman Britain

For students and teachers

The Roman province of Britannia existed for nearly 400 years from the initial Roman invasion in AD 43 to the end of Roman control in the British Isles around AD 411. What impact did Roman rule have on the province? Using objects on display in the British Museum as primary evidence, this presentation will consider examples of change and continuity during this period of British history and the picture of life in Roman Britain built up by archaeological finds and sites. Just how Roman was Roman Britain?
